vitality in the range of offerings rigor in upper-level course work seeking solutions with a multi-disciplinary perspective a commitment to diversity and global awareness. mastery of basic skills and exposure to a breadth of intellectual experiences. General Findings We have seen improvements in the GE curriculum, due to assessment, but still have areas that need improvement, such as SQL. We need better communication and focus on the

findings and recommendations of GE assessments. SUNY Oswego has adopted a reflective and inclusive process for general education design that incorporates best practices and the assessment results of our current General Education program. Recommendations Integrate the SQL committee recommendations into long term planning discussions. Incorporate the work done by the Task Force on Re-creating General Education into future assessments and restructurings of local General Education requirements.

Improve the communication of assessment results back to the departments and instructors. Recommendations Make transparent the logic of general education to faculty and students alike. For a general education curriculum to be effective, students need to understand the value of it, rather than see these courses as a burden. Encourage efforts to expand General Education course offerings related to civic engagement, sustainability and the arts.
